Today, Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion announced a rebranding of the company, called BlackBerry from now on, as well as two handsets running under the BlackBerry 10 operating system, namely the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10.
The latter will arrive on shelves with a physical QWERTY keyboard, just as the company’s legacy devices did, though it will sport a new, modern design.
Furthermore, the BlackBerry Q10 will bring along all the features and enhancements that the new mobile operating system packs inside.
To provide users with a better understanding of what the new device can offer to them, the company has published an introductory video for it.
“Even though I love the keyboard, perhaps my favorite feature is the stunning touchscreen display – the largest ever on a BlackBerry QWERTY device,” BlackBerry’s Donny H. notes in a blog post.
“If you’re a fan of a physical QWERTY device experience, you’re going to love the BlackBerry Q10. All your information is displayed beautifully on the screen, and you can take action and respond to it as you choose thanks to the powerful and elegant BlackBerry 10 software.”
The handset will land on shelves with a battery capable of providing users with at least one day of usage time, so that they can go about their usual activities efficiently.
Furthermore, it will offer fast web browsing and a rich media experience, courtesy of the built-in power of the BlackBerry 10 OS.
“Additionally, meticulous detail has been put into the design. The BlackBerry Q10 features a unique glass-weave material that is meant to be not only thinner and lighter, but stronger than plastic,” the mobile phone maker also notes.
The new device is meant to provide users with a great, new mobile experience while on the go, regardless of whether they have a full-touch or a QWERTY-enabled device in their hands.
